This workshop will summarize the fundamentals of patent law, the underlying framework that usually "goes without saying" when patent searchers are trained, including recent changes that may affect patent searches. Topics will include the conditions for patentability, ownership and assignment of patent rights, priority and the Paris Convention, patenting procedures, patent families, and variability among the patent laws of the United States and other patenting authorities.

Stephen Adams's workshop on IP in Africa can be added at a discount when registering for this workshop.
